Super fast mobile broadband is coming to Ipswich.
Digital communications company EE today announced their customers will have access to the latest 4G technology in time for Christmas.
The latest mobile broadband innovation can give speeds up to five times faster than 3G.
EE serves around 27 million customers with EE, Orange and T-Mobile broadband and mobile plans and is the first company to introduce 4G to Suffolk’s county town.
Michelle Hardcastle, EE’s regional manager for East Anglia, said: “The arrival of 4G mobile in Ipswich is great news for our customers.
“4G from EE is like having fibre broadband for your mobile phone and allows customers to access content they care about without the frustration of pages being slow to load or apps no connecting.
“With Christmas coming up there’s never been a better time to ask Santa for a smartphone.
